Check the broil burner to see if it ignites properly. If neither the bake nor broil burners ignite, then you could have a problem with the oven service shut-off valve on the regulator. That component is shown in the second image below. I recommend that you check that valve on the regulator to make sure that it is set properly.

This range uses a glow bar igniter to light the oven burner instead of a pilot light. The theory of operation for the ignition system is shown in the image below. You can pull up the bottom panel of the oven and the flame spreader to see if that igniter is glowing when you have the range set in the bake mode. If that igniter is glowing, then all of the components in that ignition circuit are likely okay except for the igniter. Replacing that igniter (part 316489400) will probably fix your failure in that situation. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before replacing that igniter.

If the igniter is not glowing, you could have a bad clock control board, a wiring failure, a bad igniter or a failed safety gas valve. Reply with additional details if you need more help with this problem.

These tips may help you fix this oven problem in your range so that you don't have to replace it. If you prefer to have a service technician repair the range, then you can schedule one through this link: Sears Home Services . The charge for labor on a service call would probably be about $140 (not including parts). It would probably cost about $250 to fix the range if you have a service technician repair it.

On this same oven, I have replaced the ignitor, the gas valve on the bake burner, which took care of the problem at the time. Now it does not start to bake or the burner flame is low, and if I cycle the regulator shutoff valve, then the gas comes on strong and works correctly. Is this a bad regulator?

Hello Benny. Assuming that the gas valve and ignitor are both okay since they were both replaced recently, your symptoms do point to a bad regulator. I recommend that you have a service technician verify that failure and replace the regulator if necessary.
